Love You Much

Happy New Year! What better way to celebrate New Year's than with a Valentine's card?! Seems crazy, but today I was in Michael's, and they already have out crafts and decorations for Valentine's Day and St. Patrick's Day! I thought I better get started, so I pulled out the brand new SU! set, "Love You Much" with matching punch and dp (Candy Lane).  I made this first card for the SC209.  I stitched around the outside of the card, as well as on one side of the red panel.  I stamped my main image on Very Vanilla cardstock, and colored in with reinkers and an aquapainter.  I added some glitter to the flower. I then used the coordinating punch to punch out the hearts along the bottom.  I picked up the ribbon today, it is from American Crafts, and was actually on sale with the Valentine's stuff!

This next card is a combination of favorite things I saw in the gallery on Splitcoast for this stamp set.  I used my top note die to die cut the bracket shape.  I then used the punch to punch the hearts out in the corner, and added some of the dp behind the back of the punched area.  I stamped the heart on Pink Pirouette cardstock, and used my reinkers and aquapainter to add color to some of the flowers. I also added some glitter to the flower centers.  I added the rhinestone brad and the filigree brad on top for some extra shine!  The sentiment is from a Hero Arts set, and was stamped on vellum.

Talk to you next year!
